Abstract

A study on ecology of sand bubbler crab was conducted at Pugu Beach, Lundu, Sarawak (22thNovember 2014 and 3rdFebruary 2015). The objectives of this study were to document the community structure of sand bubbler crabs, to study the distribution of sand bubbler crabs across intertidal area and to investigate the influence of salinity, temperature, pH, total organic matter and sediment particle size analysis on the distribution of these crab across the intertidal. The sampling was done using line transect and quadrate (1m x 1m) methods and the crabs were collected using PVC corer (3.6 cm). From this research, only one species of sand bubbler crab was found namely Dotilla intermedia. In total, about 230 individuals of D. intermedia were collected from Pugu Beach, Lundu, Sarawak. Pore water salinity (r = 0.623, p = 0.013) and sediment temperature (r = 0.564, p = 0.029) showed significant correlation with the density of D. intermedia. Thus, further study can be done to investigate the relationship of the others parameter on the density of D. intermedia.
